STATEMENT

 

Each day we are presented with a vision of happiness base on what we are missing. Sylvie’s art is proposing a bliss that can be found in our inner world, which is filled with possibilities.  The landscapes created are propounding a parallel between the nature’s strength and our own. Mountains are rooted in the wood reaching for the sky.

 

The link with nature is at the same time in the subject and the choice of support. With colour pencil’s layers the landscape is reveal from the wood, using its natural texture, and softly fading back exposing even more the support. Strong lines from the mountains are stretching toward the colourful skies, making them endless.

 

The drawings propose a peaceful space, which only seeks to take root in you.
